Carol Ann Tomlinson speaks on Balanced Parenting For Successful, Independent and Safe Youth Who Thrive

On March 2  the Glenbard Parent Series hosted Carol Ann Tomlinson on the topic Balanced Parenting for Independent Youth Who Thrive on March 2, 2017 at Glenbard West High School.

Glenbard West parent Karen Lilly shared this take away:
 "As parents we must model the values we want our children to embrace and model how we deal with our mistakes.  Teach kids to be thinkers and problem solvers and  create opportunities for mistakes so they can learn from them and see the value in making them. Strive for a growth-mindset instead of a fixed-mindset. Encourage them to give their best effort but make school about learning and not a grade. Household chores teach responsibility, and remember we may not agree with their actions/decisions, but we need to show them unconditional love, always."
